First time using Eco Choice we booked with our neighbour in the adjoining semi to keep our bay windows consistent. We were pleased with the quality and service, but for the 2nd job to replace 3 windows and an outdated patio door we did comparison shop. Price was competitive, Gabriel provided helpful suggestions, installation and clean up was great and we're happy with the result. We recommended Eco Choice to a friend who is also very satisfied. We are now replacing our other windows and didn't hesitate to book with Gabriel at Eco Choice. Highly recommend.

Lakehurst Decor was one of a few companies I found on Home Stars. We're in a semi & our neighbours wanted to paint at the same time. They were leaning towards having the exterior spray painted, but after having Mario quote and advise us regarding spray painting vs manual painting, we decided to book Lakehurst. We were able to book their last June spot. Mario and his team were a pleasure to work with. He answered all our questions timely & his team were very professional. John checked all the painters work carefully and they cleaned up each night. I would not hesi-tate to recommend Mario & John for exterior and/or interior painting.

We dealt with Kingsway Carpets & Blinds in the past and were pleased with their customer service, installation & product. We needed to update the blinds on our 3 patio doors and went back to Kingsway. They again came through with their customer service, measuring and product. Maria was very fair with the pricing. The blinds were ready earlier than they anticipated. There were a couple of small glitches with the installation, that we noticed after the fact. We contacted Kingsway and they arranged for the installer to come back in a timely fashion that was convenient for us. The issues were solved to our satisfaction. We would use Kingsway again and would not hesitate to recommend this company.

I chose Computer Central Canada based on Home Star reviews. I can't say enough about the service we received from Raymond. In the past we used a big box store and were without our computer for well over a month. We had to purchase a new computer as a loaner and then return it when we finally got our own back. Raymond's quote was very reasonable to research the issue, which turned out to be two-fold. Our desk top computer kept shutting down after we had a power outage. Raymond cleaned and replaced parts in the main drive that had been affected. It worked fine at the store but not at home. We took it back and further research showed that the transformer to the monitor had been compromised. Also the transformer was sitting on the carpet at home which caused it to overheat. Raymond helped me find a part at a reasonable price that was compatible with our monitor. He also sold us programs we had been looking for at a competitive price and installed them gratis. He gave us invaluable advise regarding the best surge protectors and where to purchase them to prevent future issues. He even did a follow up phone call to make sure everything was working well. If you want someone who has reasonable costs and cares that you are completely satisfied, look no further than Computer Central Canada. Raymond helped me order the part for the best price that would be compatible with our unit and it did the job. He also gave us a deal on programmes we needed and installed them no charge. He gave us excellent advise on the best surge protectors to purchase and where, to prevent future issues. He even did a follow up phone call. If you are looking for someone who repairs computers for a reasonable price and researches issues until they are completed to your satisfaction, look no farther than Computer Central. problem continued at home and we had to take it back. He continued to research the problem and discovered the transformer to the monitor had also been compromised. He also gave us a deal on programmes we needed and advise on purchasing adequate surge protection for the future. He even followed up by phone. If you are looking for reasonable costs and someone who will take the time to research a problem until it is solved to your satisfaction, look no farther than Computer Central Canada. had a rain storm and the power went out. It came back on and thdesk top pc came back up, but the Acer monitor started to shut down out of the blue. We would stop using it for a period of time and then it would work again for a short time and then just cut out again. He was honest about the quote and time needed to fix.I would definitely recommend if you are looking for an affordable solutions for your problems.

I read the reviews for Kingsway Carpet and Blinds on Home Stars and we decided to visit the store. Maria was very knowledgeable about their products, provided a variety of options and also explained both their benefits and drawbacks. She showed us products in different price ranges, including Hunter Douglas and how they compared. We normally get 3 quotes before choosing a company to work with. Although Kingsway was only our 2nd contact, I was so impressed with the friendliness & knowledge of this family run company that we decided to place our order the same day. George came out to the house to take measurements of our new bay window so that they would be accurate, before placing the order. Our window is at the front of the house and without our old mini blinds there was no privacy. Kingsway very kindly supplied us with temporary paper blinds that we could adjust to give us light in the day and privacy at night, until our new blinds arrived. The installer was on time, friendly, very professional and tidy. He installed the blinds and then adjusted them until they fit together perfectly on all three portions of the bay window. We would not hesitate to recommend this company if you are looking for blinds or shutters. They also sell and install carpeting and we plan to get a quote from them in the future to install a runner on our hardwood stairs.

We had a wooden shed in our yard that was starting to show it's age. We originally planned to purchase a man-made shed that would not require upkeep. Normally I go to Home Stars for recommendations, but I found the website for In the Backyard by chance and it was "Brian Baumler approved."The pictures on their web site convinced us to go with a wooden shed again. I asked for a quote and Peter responded quickly. I sent him photos of the shed that was being replaced, as we asked for the old shed removal to be included in the price, as we are seniors and we also do not have the proper tools. The install date was delayed due to circumstances beyond Peter's control, but he kept us in the loop and the product was delivered the week before the installation by the installation team. These young men looked at the old shed and they presumed there would be no issues. However, when the old shed was removed they found holes from animals in the space where the previous shed had been and concrete from a previous sidewalk installation. Leveling for the new shed is apparently not part of the installation process, so the installers asked my husband for his input. As a result the shed was installed on the edging stones of our new brick patio and there were large gaps under all sides of the shed. I emailed Peter as soon as I saw how it looked and sent him pictures. I explained that we needed to have it off of the bricking and asked what we could do. He responded promptly the next day. He agreed that he and his foreman Rob would be able to rectify the situation as the shed only had to be moved a few inches and he arranged to come to Mississauga with the equipment needed to fix the job. Thanks to Peter and Rob's expertise they were able to move the shed and then make adjustments so that the doors fit properly. I would recommend this company to install a shed, but be aware that leveling is not part of the installation process, so this is something the homeowner would need to do beforehand, if needed. The shed comes primed for painting and we have now completed one coat of paint. The shed we chose has a small window, with a screen, to the left of the double doors and a vent on one side of the shed just under the roof line. The top half of the double doors have windows so there is lots of natural light. We opted to add solar lights on each side of the door and they complete the look beautifully.

Hi Nancy, so glad you are happy with your shed. We aim to please. Just a note that all of our shed foundations are leveled and squared prior to wall installation.
Thanks again.

We had a Suncoast screen enclosure installed on our wood deck approx. 8 yrs. ago. Recently our wood deck, which was at least 12 yrs. old, started to rot. In order to have a new deck installed we first had to have the screen enclosure removed and then re-installed after the new deck was in place. The original installer was no longer in business, but we found that Suncoast still has 2 installers in Ontario, one company in Aurora and one in Hamilton. Mississauga comes under the umbrella of Toronto and we contacted George at Lifestyle Oasis. He quoted a price by email due to the distance, arranged for the enclosure's removal and re-installation. He gave us an estimate for the re-installation, as the installers would not know if new material would be required or any other issues would come up when they did the re-installation. Fortunately the team did an awesome job of removing and reinstalling the enclosure and came in under the quote. Thanks George and team for a great job! The new composite deck looks amazing and the screened in porch fit back on like a glove. Hopefully it will not have to be removed again but if it ever did, we know whom to call for great service!!

Our 12' x 16' wooden deck approx. 12+ years old was rotting, as were the original supports below (approx. 30 yrs. old.) We had an unusual issue as the deck had a screened porch enclosure. This enclosure had to be removed by another co. before a new deck could be installed and then re-installed afterwards. We contacted Rob at Hickory Dickory Decks - sw Mississauga. He took measurements multiple times and drew up a design sketch to ensure that the porch enclosure would be re-installed exactly to spec. We received a quote for both a wood deck and composite and were shown various samples at the show yard. Rob took time to answer all our questions and was willing to incorporate our ideas when they complimented the project. If you live in south west Mississauga and want a company that charges a reasonable price, completes the work on time and goes the extra distance to make sure the job is completed to the customer's satisfaction, even with Rob pitching in to help when needed, then look no farther. Thanks Rob & team! The new composite deck looks awesome. We are seniors and will not have to worry about the upkeep of a wood deck. Well worth the extra cost, which was far less than we had anticipated, between wood and composite. We hope to enjoy our new deck for many years to come.
